Tottenham Hotspur have travelled to Holland to take on PSV Eindhoven this evening in the Champions League.

Spurs will be looking for a convincing win to kickstart their European come back after losing the first two matches this campaign.

Realistically, Tottenham need two strong wins in their back-to-back games against PSV to maintain hopes of qualifying for the knockout stages.

Tottenham were extremely impressive in both games against Inter Milan and Barcelona, and were unlucky to come through without a single point.

First team stars Christian Eriksen and Mousa Dembele are back in the squad after weeks out through injury, with Dele Alli also on the mend.

However, one other squad member continues to stick out, and that is one Oliver Skipp.

The youngster is held in very high regard by manager Pochettino, and has been involved on the bench in a number of high profile fixtures.

Skipp was named as a substitute for the game against Barcelona at Wembley.

He impressed during the US pre season tour where he faced the likes of Barca and AC Milan.

He is still waiting for his competitive debut, but fans can be sure that Poch isn’t keeping him around the squad just for the sake of it.
